Is this aircraft still operational? I hope not. The seats are literally falling apart, there's stains on the head rests, etc etc.

Even if the seast were in decent shape, isn't this the most awful interior color scheme you have ever seen?

Yes it is operational but there will be a brief delay while lemon-scented napkins are loaded.  Big grin

There are also some mechanical difficulties that will be rectified shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience.

But no, unless airlines have gotten the idea to park at the gate without engines, being held in place by concrete slabs infront of the nosegear, and taking the air out of the tires until the plane is boarded, I'm sure the plane is no longer flying.

However, the picture does resemble an Air France 777. hehehe.

That plane is clean compared to an AF 777.
